Hu: The problem of a coherent web identity, as part of each user’s first | layer experience of the web<WP.MIC-H2S11>, has led, just as much, to a fragmentation of the identity of a web-user, as of ’22. The profile, an easy button # to edit the totality of one’s entire web presence, and the ability, for that menu, to have a pervasive impact, on, for instance, all instances of the appearance of one’s name, in association with one’s web identity, is a necessity, and part of the distant vision of the early web pioneers<ch.16-H2S4>, to be built-in to the protocol layer. This idea has been brought up by Consensys: // insert quote, a-r, Hu, and other crypto/blockchain-companies, but misapplied, because this protocol-implementation has nothing to do with blockchain. As Snap’s very existence<WP.MIC-H2S14>was a revolt against the counter–immediacy of iOS-unlock, worth, just in itself as protest, over $15-bn, blockchain, as a term, has been associated, with protest against protocol-abuses, in the post-1997 era, of web development, at least by the “big | players“. But again, these protests have nothing to do with blockchain, because blockchain is not the solution.
